Membership & Support


The Indianapolis Motor Speedway Foundation, Inc. is a non-profit organization contributions to which are deductible from one’s income under Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c)(3). Our mission is to celebrate more than a century of the innovation, thrill, and adventure of motor racing at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.  We accomplish this mission by operating the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum and various tours on the grounds of the Speedway and elsewhere.

Since its inception, the Museum has kept its admission and tour prices affordable so that the greatest possible number of people may enjoy all it has to offer.  In addition, children five years old and under and active duty military personnel are always admitted free.

We depend on revenue from Museum admission, tours, events and fees related to its collection to operate it the Museum and our programs.  Unrestricted private support enables the Museum to tell the stories of those who made history at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway to enlighten, engage, educate and entertain our guests.  Giving to the Museum can be done in several ways:


Members of the Museum provide support while enjoying a variety of benefits such as free admission to special members-only events, reduced admission to other Museum events, complimentary tours and special recognition.  Below are the membership levels and the benefits of each.  Members may choose to decline benefits, thus making their membership fully tax deductible. Memberships are for one year and are renewable on a year-to-year basis.  Gift memberships are available and are a perfect way to honor birthdays, Father’s or Mother’s Day, or just as a surprise for a loved one.
